into effect. people aren't going to be happy about that, and the president will be able to say, look, i begged them, i repeatedly said 98% of the american public, they wouldn't get a tax increase if we just took them out of the equation, let's pass legislation extending the bush tax cuts for everyone earning under $250,000 a year. they didn't do it. so, you know, he'll have some leverage on that in terms of the politics because politically, you know, the polls all are very consistent. the election results are pretty consistent. the american public is ready for a modest increase in taxes for the upper 2% of taxpayers. having said that, there's another issue that's coming up in february or march and that's raising the debt ceiling once again. the republicans have a lot of leverage on that right now because the white house, the administration will desperately want to raise that debt ceiling so the u.s. doesn't go into default. that could undermine u.s. creditworthiness, u.s. interest rates, all that kind of stuff, and the republicans will have some serious leverage there down the road. both sides

-wage employment, being forced to beg for meals, being less likely to have access to transportation and the justice system in whatever country they happen to be in. in america we fought to pass the americans with disabilities act and we lead the world in services in accessibility for disabled people. we passed it because democracy is only as vibrant as it is open to the participation of all citizens. that's why i was proud to cosponsor critical amendments to the a. dea., the americans with ta disabilities act to make the definition of "disability" more inclusive. we taught for the a.d.a. amendments act of 2008 because access to a good-paying job, to public transportation, to public accommodation should be universal. now, some detractors say, well, americans are taken care of here at home. why should we worry about discrimination that disabled people in other countries might suffer? dr. king wrote in a letter from a birmingham jail that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. he explained that we're caught in an inhescapable network of mutuality tied in a single garment of destiny. wha

jesus, the night before he dies, is prostrate on the ground, begging god, "if this all could pass... but i will do what you want," and the disciples all flee. now, that's an awful picture. that makes sense to me because mark is writing to a persecuted community who knows... who know what it's like to die. that's how you die, feeling abandoned by god. over to "john." jesus is not on the ground in "john." the whole cohort of the jerusalem forces come out, 600 troops come out to capture jesus, and they end up with their faces on the ground in "john." and jesus says, "of course i will do what the father wants." and jesus tells them to, "let my disciples go." he's in command of the whole operation. you have a jesus out of control, almost, in "mark," a jesus totally in control in "john"-- both gospels. neither of them are historical. i don't think either of them know exactly what happened. >> jesus dies on a different day in john's gospel than in "matthew," "mark" and "luke." in the three synoptic gospels, jesus actually eats a passover meal before he dies. in john's gospel, he doesn't.

begs a question. the u.s. has actually spoken of the move of chemical weaponry before, but this, officials are saying, is different. tell us why. >> well, it's different because the intelligence information that is coming out, the data, shows moving apparently these weapons or supplies, and they have done that before, but the way they are doing them, it's different, and it's kind of a new activity, i guess you could call it, which might indicate some type of move toward deploying the weapons. it's a little murky, of course, right there. you heard secretary clinton not wanting to get into intelligence issues, as you can imagine, but there is a heightened concern, and that is one of the reasons that when she was asked about it during this brief -- during this presser in prague, she was very, very serious in her response. >> yeah. no. i heard earlier that they tend to keep the chemical -- the chemicals separate from the delivery systems, the rockets, the mortars, and it looks like they are bringing the two together, which is worrying, but the syrian government playing it all down.
